i run mono green treefolk.... i vote Wickerbough Elder over Qasali Pridemage.... and some utility to consider is Descendants' Path and Elvish Piper for more cheating creatures in play....something very simply like Rampant Growth is a good (budget) way to help with color fixing as well as thinning out lands so Leaf-Crowned Elder will trigger.

just peeked in on your profile page after commenting on my Tibalt brew... after reading your description i think some cards that might interest you regarding Fauna Shaman are Bosk Banneret, Descendants' Path, Leaf-Crowned Elder and Elvish Piper...maybe Asceticism and then just insert suitable/preferred shaman fatty. Happy Brewing!

THANK YOU EVERYONE! I think I was barking up the wrong tree (pun intended) with the concept of topdeck manipulation/tutors and i think im going to go the way of additional ways to cheat out creatures with Call of the Wild Esq cards/effects to bolster Leaf-Crowned Elder.... leaning towards a 2x Elvish Piper and 3x Descendants' Path to max out my non-creature spell count to 10... this deck-build reminds me a lot of building a Quest for Ula's Temple deck.

Thank you all for commenting on this forum and giving me ideas. Im gonna playtest it like the for a little bit and see if it works the way i want and then work my way into improving the creature list/sideboard by maybe adding in some Dungrove Elder and then decide if i wanna pursue a more deck thinning mana base.

yeah im still looking.... Cream of the Crop is almost exactly what im looking for but not quite.... considering the low power of early Treefolk that I can play prior to having Leaf-Crowned Elder out.... fetchlands/improving the manabase is a project im gonna work on for another time; but agreed can be improved upon.

Im looking for mono-green topdeck manipulation and or tutoring effects to increase consistency of getting Leaf-Crowned Elder online for my treefolk tribal deck. I am already running 4x Treefolk Harbinger but I think he can use some help. Im leaning towards cutting/replacing Lurking Predators/Luminescent Rain in favor of these effects

Looks pretty good! Here are a couple of things that come to mind:

You only have a few ally cards in the deck. As a result I'm worried that the ones that require multiple allies to be in play to be useful such as Agadeem Occultist and Drana's Chosen will often times not be as relevent as you hope. If you're not planning on adding other allies, i'd probably cut them. Additionally, I saw you put a combo with drana's chosen in the description but i don't understand how it works (it's possible i'm just missing something though). Assuming you had a sac outlet and either a second thornbite staff or Conspiracy (to make the tokens also be allies), i could see it working but since the staff only untaps one creature and you need to tap two allies to make a token (the chosen and another ally), you appear to be limited by the amount of allies already in play.

Here are a few other shamans you might want to consider: Leaf-Crowned Elder, Oracle of Mul Daya, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest

Dauntless Dourbark for maximum smash, Everbark Shaman for crazy ramp (notice that doesn't say basic lands, get duals and shocks if they're in your budget and if not you can still grab murmuring bosk), and Leaf-Crowned Elder is insane.

Treefolk Seedlings and Kalonian Twingrove are two more smash-tastic creatures
